Mr BurnsA well-loved episode of The Simpsons is recounted by a group of survivors in post-apocalyptic America, and is told over and over again, and as in Chinese whispers, it is reshaped and becomes a myth. Anne Washburn's drama, Mr Burns, is directed by Almeida associate Robert Icke, currently directing Headlong's hit 1984, for its European premiere. When it opened in New York last autumn the New York Times raved about the "downright brilliant Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play" which will leave you "dizzy with the scope and dazzle of its ideas". Although the play spans 80 years and centres on a vision of American after an apocalypse, at its heart is a renewed appreciation of storytelling in all its different guises.

 

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
